What does FSR mean

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Stompboxx, Nov 1, 2005.

  1. Just purchased a 1970 RI Fender P-bass which also says FSR. Could someone shed some light. Have looked in a few places but info. was limited. All I can find is that it stands for factory special run. Thanks.

    IIRC, some big sellers (Musician's Friend, Sam Ash, etc.) will get Fender to do a special run of maybe one to several hundred of an item with one or two unique features (color or whatever).

    Those "special runs" are then sold exclusively through that retailer until they're gone. So that's likely what you have.

    Might wanna check your sig. Seems you have a factory run special bass. :)
